I (victim) received a subpoena and my mom did as well but she isn't a witness of anything. I don't want to go because I don't want to testify against him and I don't want to press charges on him. Can I ignore it and what will happen? If its mandatory and I go what should I say? do I have the right not to say anything at all and do I have the right to not press charges on him? Why does my mom have to go?the subpoena was bought to me by a social worker when I wasn't home.
